Adding people to your Freckle account
If you're about ready to add a new team member—congratulations! That means your team is growing! Give yourself a pat on the back and then follow these easy steps to add your new team member:
- Go to the People tab in the green navigation sidebar on the left side of your screen. Here you'll see a list of all of the currently active members of your team.
- Click the + invite people button in the top right hand corner.
- A dialog will appear where you can add email addresses of people you want to invite. You can invite as many people to your Freckle team as you'd like by entering their email addresses, separated by commas. You'll also choose what permissions your new team members will have by designating if the they are a Supervisor, Leader, Coworker, or Contractor.
- To see a full list of what each permission set can & can't do, mouse over the name. (Please note that some permissions options are customizable, so this screenshot may be different for your Freckle account.)
- After you click the Add People & Send Invitation Emails button, the new team members will be immediately be available in your list of active members!
All your new team members will receive an invitation email with the subject line "You're invited to Freckle!". This email contains a personalized link to set up their password. This link only works once and is different for each invitee. Because Freckle stores passwords in encrypted form, they can't be sent by email and need to be set before logging in for the first time. Freckle will guide new users through this process so you don't have to do anything!
If you add a name to the emails in the list of people you invite, Freckle also stores any first and last name given (this happens when you enter an email address like this: "Thomas Fuchs <firstname.lastname@example.org>"). The fields will be pre-filled when these people sign in for the first time.
When you invite people, your monthly billing amount might change depending on your Freckle subscription plan. Please see the Plans & Billing tab in the green sidebar navigation for details on your plan.
Assigning projects to coworkers and contractor
If you're adding a Coworker or a Contractor, you'll need to assign them projects before they can log in. If they have no projects assigned, they won't be able to sign in to your Freckle account. You can do this easily when you invite them. As soon as you select Coworker or Contractor a new field will show up at the bottom of the dialog:
